Arsenal to make £4m bid to sign teenager this month – report
Arsenal are reportedly ready to step up their pursuit of defender Ben Chilwell before the transfer deadline
Arsenal are ready to table a new and improved £4m bid to sign Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell this month, according to reports.
The north London side have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks but have thus far only signed midfielder Mohamed Elneny from FC Basel.
Arsene Wenger, who watched his Arsenal side slump to a disappointing 1-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday, is believed to be on the lookout for further reinforcements before the January transfer window closes on Monday evening.
Arsenal have been linked with a bid for Chilwell in recent days, and now The Sun reports that the Gunners are lining up a £4m offer after having had a £3m bid rejected by the Foxes already this month.
Chilwell is said to earn around £800 a week on his current contract, which has 18 months left to run at the King Power Stadium.
The same newspaper report also states that both Tottenham and Liverpool are interested in Chilwell.
